Of the 4 Kayaks I have purchased, the West Marine Saba 14.0 Tandem Sit Inside is my favorite. Though tandem I use as a single with camping gear. It tracks straight, and moves easily through the water. For a larger man, it is comfortable for me traveling hours at the time. At 80 lb carry weight It is easy for me to load/unload, It is capable of carrying 650 lbs, which is plenty for 1 or 2 people plus camping gear, Though this was my first kayak purchase, I would buy again. I have 3 more that are cheaper quality and i can tell a noticeable difference in speed, stability, & tracking. I would definitely purchase again. There are a few mods I may make in the future, but have not made my mind up.
